WATCH: Wynne testifies again at gas plant probe

Premier vows she didn't lie about anything

Kathleen Wynne pushed back while testifying at the gas plant probe at Queen's Park, knocking down opposition claims that she holds some of the blame for the Mississauga and Oakville cancellations' $1.1 billion pricetag.

The NDP says Wynne got the ball rolling in the Oakville case after signing a document that allowed negotiations with developer TransCanada Enterprises to move forward.

Wynne underlines the province chose to negotiate with the developer instead of going through litigation because the Liberal government thought it would be cheaper.

Meantime, the Tories allege Wynne lied about what the costs of the Oakville cancellation would be, given a number of bureaucrats revealed higher costs. However, Wynne says she never lied and testified to the numbers which were given to her.  

This was Wynne's second time testifying at the gas plant hearings. Opposition parties wanted to call her back after the Auditor General released her report on the Oakville cancellation.

    Unlikely as it may be, I sincerely hope that our unelected premier gets a nice long stretch of jail time over the billion-plus dollars her and her crooked party have stolen from us.

    If Nigel Wright was charged with breach of trust she should be charged. If she had an once of integrity she would have not have signed the go ahead; she did to buy votes inturn to keep her job she is disgusting and a criminal and has disgraced the office. At least Mayor Ford admitted exactly what he did and got punished and has moved on but here in Ontario if you are a liberal like mayor Fontana and steal millions from a charity and from the public purse you get a pass as long as you keep the unions happy you are in office. we have the worst media in the world. Where a person not a god has a personal issue is ridiculed and those liberals and the media whom have robbed and have total contempt for the public gets praise, bs in Ontario.
